Mexico City is the oldest city in America and is located on a plateau in the center of the country. The capital of Mexico will attract you for its museums and traditions, the buildings of the colonial era and the modern ones, but also for its vibrant cultural life.

The history of Mexico City, whose first name was Tenochtitlan, the city of palaces, is a long and rich legacy of great nations, from the Aztecs to the Maya. Third largest city in the world after Tokyo and New York, the Mexican capital invites you to discover its historical center, its parks and archaeological finds of pre-Columbian peoples.

With the Spanish conquest of 1521 and the end of the Aztec, begins the modern history of Mexico City. Today the city is home to over eight million people, while another twenty populate the huge metropolitan area.
